    DNA libraries generated from 235 post mortem human brain samples were sequenced using 150 bp, paired end Illumina chemistry to a desired depth of 30X coverage. Reads were aligned to either the linear GRCh38 alt-free reference genome, the linear telomere to telomere hs1 reference genome, or the draft human pangenome.

    The granular dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (dlPFC) is an evolutionary specialization of primates that is centrally involved in cognition. We assessed more than 600,000 single-nucleus transcriptomes from adult human, chimpanzee, macaque, and marmoset dlPFC.

    Cytosolic citrate is imported from the mitochondria by SLC25A1, and from the extracellular milieu by SLC13A5. In the cytosol, citrate is used by ACLY to generate acetyl-CoA, which can then be exported to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) by SLC33A1.
